"Many folks west of the Mississippi don't realize just how short a drive it is from Philadelphia to Boston on I-95 and the massive concentration of people in such a relatively small geographical area"

I don't think you realize the length of that drive either,it is 309 miles or about 5 hours.I don't think a normal person considers 309 miles to be a short drive.It was eye opening information that a lot of people lived in that area between Philadelphia and Boston,who would have thought a 309 mile stretch on the east coast including NYC would result in a large population.I suppose next you are going to tell us that there are a lot of Indian and Chinese people in Asia.

That drive is hellish, and there's no way to do it in less than 6 hours unless you are driving like a maniac.

Jerlouvis, I hope your comments were meant to be directed at dark.starz.

I would be deeply offended if you thought of me as part of the Kochman franchise.

btw, I have never driven between Boston and Philadelphia . . . I wouldn't have a clue about miles or time.

But glad to see you mention that Dark Star from 10/21/71. I don't visit that one as often as i used to - good reminder.

Of course that was directed at Kochman DP, I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear.I have made that drive many times having lived in NY most of my life and has unclejohn52 pointed out I was stating the absolute best case scenario.

Drove the I-95 many times for business back in the late 70's and 80's up until late 2001 when the government made flying such a miserable experience.

Driving from California to Colorado is a short 24 hour drive as is Colorado to Illinois, done both several times.

Therfore, the 5 hour drive on I-95 from Philly to Boston is a short drive.

In terms of concentration in a metropolitan area, i believe Tokyo tops the world list @ 13 Million. Perhaps this explains the abnormal suicide rate in this highly congested area?
